We want to usher in a new era of science — one where the process of scientific discovery is open and accessible to all who dare to join us, one where the public and scientists partner to ask and answer real questions about the biodiversity in our daily lives.
We study familiar yet under-explored habitats – from belly buttons to backyards to your bathroom and kitchen.
We’re motivated by questions. We’re driven by hypotheses. With your help, we collect loads of data. With your help, we analyze the data. With your help, we answer questions, we test hypotheses, and we decide where to aim our next investigation.
Science is a process – it is always moving forward, sometimes agonizingly slow, inch by inch, and yet at other times by great rapid leaps and bounds.
Join us in all parts of this process of discovery. Exciting opportunities await you.
